  • Organization: Emily is excellent! She efficiently tackled organizational projects I didn't even know where to begin with, and the results are excellent. She is also really nice, a clear communicator, and works independently and thoughtfully. Amanda K., August 11, 2015

 

  • Moving Help: Emily gives great advice on moving and storage.  She helped orient me in the right way.   Invaluable.  She is courteous and efficient.  Wonderful experience.  Xavier M., August 09, 2015

 

  • Organization: Emily was simply fantastic! She unpacked and organized my kitchen beautifully and logically. It has been incredibly easy for me to maintain her organization, and she organized it in such a user-friendly fashion that I haven't even been tempted to change any part of the organization. In addition, she was on-time, friendly and provided me with helpful ideas of small changes I could make to better organize my kitchen and closet. Susan E., August 05, 2015

 

  • Moving Help: Emily was great - super organized - amazing! Jason K., August 04, 2015

 

  • Organization: Emily was fantastic. She was very communicative prior to our appointment and showed up right on time. We did not waste a minute once she arrived. We transformed a room that I couldn't enter previously (due to stuff overflow) and got everything clear and nicely organized everything that remained. I'd highly recommend Emily!  Erin B., August 02, 2015

  • Moving Help: She was incredibly helpful taking control of the packing process and making it as smooth and efficient as possible. Got everything done in less than half the time I expected! I plan to use her much more in the future. Charlotte Y., June 29, 2015

 

  • Organization: Great ! She got me focused quickly and we plowed through a lot of paper - to file, shred, recycle. I found things I forgot I had to do !!  Emily is gentle in the way she heard me when I said I had to do it this way, I have to…blah, blah, I did not feel I had to do it her way at all--believe me, I've had organizers be that way and I give in. I have a hard time speaking up for myself.  It was a great experience, gave me energy to see my area cleaned up. MARY BETH D., June 25, 2015

 

  • Organization: Emily was fantastic to work with. She responded to my request promptly, arrived on time, and was able to help me unpack and organize in a BIG way.

  • Organization: I can't believe how much work Emily and I were able to get done in one afternoon! She was great to work with. Marci K., May 03, 2015

 

  • From Yelp: After years of paying for a storage unit that was just too overwhelming to tackle, Emily helped me get the accumulated stuff sorted out. She helped me go through stacks of boxes, divide the contents into keep/toss/donate piles, and even managed the process of listing items for sale on craigslist and handling interactions with the buyers. By hiring Emily, I have been able to cut a $200 monthly expense from my budget and I'm no longer weighed down by stuff I didn't need or want. Emily can both help you figure out how to solve a clutter or organization problem and execute the solution. And she's a pleasure to work with! Elizabeth C. April 15, 2015

 

  • From Yelp: A friend recommended that I contact Emily Hemphill of Vital Organizing to help me with a move across town last summer and I seriously don't know how I could have managed without her. Our initial meeting was great. She asked targeted questions to get a sense for what I was able to do myself, what my stress points were, where I needed a project partner, and where I needed her to completely take over. The process of moving could get emotional and overwhelming for me and it was invaluable to have someone by my side who kept a clear head--her calm confidence brought my stress level down considerably. Emily was professional, on-time, reachable, and responsive throughout the entire process. She is an incredibly good problem solver and there was never a time that an issue came up that she didn't have a solution for. She prioritized steps of the move, helped me purge things I didn't need, listed things on Craigslist and managed the responses, took donations to appropriate organizations and brought me tax receipts, packed boxes and my car, organized a Zipcar rental to move some larger furniture, and helped me with unpacking and organizing. There is no doubt in my mind that having Emily manage my move saved me time and money, not to mention stress. More recently, Emily helped me purge and organize my closet. This was something on my to-do list forever and I just needed someone to help me get some momentum and push the project to completion.  I would hire Emily again and again.

  • From Houzz:  Emily of Vital Organizing is involved with one of my current projects and has proved to be a great asset to the team. She helped organize the logistics of a move from a large home outside of DC to another home closer to the city. I know the client relies heavily on her skills. Emily is organized, professional and a great communicator. I highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance with moving, downsizing, streamlining their life or general organization.

  • Organization: Emily was fantastic from start to finish!
